Dont all clown on a modded SRT-4.... they arent joke cars. I still drive my highly modded 500+whp SRT-4 daily.
They guy commenting on them, is a tool. The stage kits were not factory, they were offered from Mopar Aftermarket.
A stg 3 SRT-4 would outperform an M3 of its day, anytime in a straight line to top speed, and wouldnt do to shabby on a road course either but that is where the M3 shines. Doesnt make the SRT-4 bad, but thats the M3s bread and butter.
Point is the guy was a turd, and misguided, but his fundamentals were sound.
My Neon outperforms my BMW in EVERY aspect (except gas milage), and would put an embarrassment clinic on an M3.
It doesnt look as refined, not as flashy, but to me, its the performance that counts and not the wrapper.
